Non-Slip Composite Decking Enhances VW Financial Services HQ

Details how PHP Architects chose Raaft Terrafina Excel Non-Slip Composite Decking as part of a development at VW Financial Services Headquarters in Milton Keynes.


Hastings, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/11/2014 -- A prominent terraced area of VW Financial Services HQ, Milton Keynes, now features Raaft Terrafina Excel Board, a wood-polymer, non-slip composite decking system that complements this already striking building with its excellent aesthetic and anti-slip properties.

Located on Delaware Drive, Milton Keynes, the Volkswagen Financial Services headquarters is set within a striking building boasting a prominent terraced area at its front and Raaft Terrafina Excel was chosen to enhance this outside terraced area. It's grey brown finish provides natural but contemporary finish, whilst its wood-polymer, non-slip composite properties will deliver a long-lasting, low-maintenance environment, providing enhanced safety to all who enjoy using it.

The terraced area, designed by PHP Architects, was professionally fitted by PDS Carpentry, as part of contractor, Vinci Constructions remit. The project also made good use of the new Raaft adjustable deck support pedestals. Removing the need for traditional, sub-base aggregate, flooring surfaces can be installed and elevated from the base deck layer, providing drainage and access to surfaces beneath.

Richard McMullan, Business Development Manager of parent brand, Kinley Systems, commented on this flagship project: "With an increase in the development of balconies, roof gardens and public terraces, more and more developers, architects and landscape architects are incorporating our high performance decking system. The VW Financial Services project used all the elements of the Terrafina system including the adjustable support pedestals. The level of workmanship was excellent and we're delighted with the finished result."
